I was walking with my dear wife Karen in downtown Syracuse, minding our own business intending to pass the big bank building to meet our group of friends at terrific Irish Pub Kitty Hoynes.
I had to stop and pull my iPhone 6 out of my pocket because of something new.
Somebody had putt … No, somebody had put two greens on the Chase plaza.
Don’t worry. They’re artificial grass.
Karen figured it might be a ploy to sell more of these babies to people who want them in their backyards. No, I don’t. It would not look good with Ellie B’s business blocking the line of my putts.
They do look good out here on South Salina Street, though, I must say.

I of course did not have my putter under my arm.
At the Pub, I mentioned the new greens and our lack of real play this season to KP. Yes, he agreed. A possibility for puttering around later this summer on a break from SMG and the Liverpool Public Library …
What do you think of this downtown spot of green? What interesting things have popped up in your town? Where have you putted lately?
